I'm G2G rookie. Adolphus Wright is my 3rd great grandfather. I'm attempting to uncover as much info on him as possible. In 1870, his residence is Brooks County, GA. His race is Mulatto. His wife is named Caroline. I have not been able to come across any information prior to 1870.

I have some early cousins named Wright and many lived in New England. When my father was in the Navy and stationed in Gainesville, GA, I lived there for a year or so. 

The only additional information I found was the 1880 US Census in Quitman, Brooks, GA where only two children are left at the residence, Fort Wright age 18 and John Wright age 15. It has Adolphus's father born in TN and his mother in KY. 

There was a marriage in 1881 between an Adolphus Wright and Darkis Jones.

Adolphus Wright s/b born abt. 1817.

I have found repeatly when the same name shows up with different dates they end up being related. As an example not to long ago when I was helping someone the name Sam Brenick kept appearing at least three times with different dates and ages and she said this is not my Sam but it turned out they were all in the same tree.

For example a son can name his son after his father. Or a brother can name his son

after his brother etc.

What if Adolphus Wright b- 1817 son Fort Wright b-1862, named his son Adolphus b-1890?

thanks for the insight. how are thank you's added to a comment? i have not figured that out.

Again somehow I believe this Adolphus Wright could be related to the orginal Adolphus Wright b-1817. Possible a grandson or a great grandson. Or a brothers

grandson.
